Thank you for partnering with us to educate our employees on the very important (and fun!) topic of humor in the workplace. The information you provided was invaluable!

Leading from Your Soul was the perfect topic for our audience--nothing but rave reviews from attendees.

Andrea Osborne, Meeting Planner, America's Second Harvest

A valuable combination of high energy, participation and information.

Kathy Schmitt, American Trust Bank

Your ability to establish a rapport with the team members prior to the session by engaging them as they arrived, combined with your upbeat and humorous style, set the tone for an honest and collaborative exchange of ideas. The team was unanimous in expressing their feelings on the effectiveness and value of the session. Several said it was the best workshop they have ever attended.

Debra Steinkraus, VP, Operations and Client Services, Archway Marketing Services

Of all the speakers I have heard in my 20-plus years in the CPA profession, no one comes close to you in making an effective speaker-audience connection. You make it look so easy.

Mark DeNucci, Boulay, Heutmaker, Zibell & Co.

I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Robin during a large start up operation in Edmonton, AB for an entertainment complex. Robin has more energy and positive attitude than anyone I have worked with. Completely prepared for all occasions and sessions based on a deep well of knowledge, especially in food and beverage staffing and operations. I have seen her work one-on-one and with groups nearing 1,000. Everyone feels connected, engaged and sees new "things" during her training. Oh, and you might just have a laugh or two along the way.

Don Jones, Brunswick Recreation Center

I laughed until I cried and it felt wonderful!

Conference attendee - Clemson Professional Women's Development Conference

Thank you for creating an outstanding learning experience for the 2006 Leadership Challenge Business Conference for Women! Your opening keynote, Creating Environments Where People Thrive, immediately involved the audience and created an atmosphere of learning that continued throughout the day.

Mary Angela Baker, Director, Center for Continuing Education and Leadership Institute, College of St. Catherine

Robin did a fantastic job of working with our executive team at Courage Center, a large, well-respected nonprofit organization in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The project: understand staff perspective on the culture of the organization and commit, as an executive team, to creating a healthy, respectful environment that supports client needs. Robin facilitated a number of meetings working with executives with very different styles and personalities to create consensus and commitment to act in response to the employee survey. The overall culture of Courage continues today to reflect the expected behaviors by leadership and all staff; behaviors developed through the work of Robin Getman.

Pete Berridge, Vice President of Human Resources, Courage Center

Robin’s leadership workshop was the best of the conference. She’s a MUST for our next meeting! Robert Kinkead, President - Council of Independent Restaurants of America Your presentation was the perfect way to end our day.

Alexis Means, Human Resources Director, Detroit Zoological Institute

Your high energy personality, humor and interaction with your audience allowed our staff to end their day energized, motivated and more knowledgeable on how to deliver exceptional customer service.

Once again, the seminar evaluations came back with rave reviews. Thank you for making us look so good!

Gloria Gappa-Grundman, Director, Greater Milwaukee Convention and Visitors Bureau

Your style of interacting with the audience was exceptional allowing the audience to become part of the learning process… actual, every day examples… vivacious, humorous attitude… Our membership has rated you as the best program this year and requested you return for another meeting next year.

Connie Hill, Education Committee Chair, International Association of Administrative Professionals-Minneapolis

The combination of personal stories, demonstrations, and small group interaction was great. Robin made us think… she inspired us, kept us laughing, and left us wishing we had more time to spend with her!

Joan Gatzmeyer CPS/CAP, Chapter VP, International Association of Administrative Professionals-TC West

My colleagues and I hired Robin to provide the opening motivational keynote for our agency's first job seeker counselor conference in a long time. These counselors are folks helping laid off workers find jobs - and the economy was already starting to slide. Tough work. Since we knew counselors would show up a little tired and skeptical, we wanted to hit a home run with the conference - and the first at-bat was critical. Robin not only delivered a fine performance, but took the steps before and after to show personal care for our audience. She crafted her message carefully, spoke with us several times before the actual event, and even found a way to connect personally with what we do. A year and a half later, I'm still hearing praise from counselors for having her there. She's terrific. Thank you, Robin!

Anthony Alongi, Director, MN-DEED Dislocated Worker Program

Robin was a keynote speaker at the 2011 MRPA Annual Conference and was wonderful to have. Her presentation captivated the audience and gave the audience great information to use in their organizations. She is a consummate professional and great to work with. I highly recommend Robin as a speaker!

John Stutzman, MRPA Conference Co-Chair, Minnesota Recreation and Park Association

WOW!!! I want to thank you for the fantastic presentation, Laughter and Soul-The Spirit of Service–people were delighted with you.
